How do I check if my Video has Shader2.0 or 3.0?


Recommended Posts

Just wondering, can you tell me how to find out if my Video card has Shader 2.0 or better?

Card info ---> NVIDIA GeForce 9200 880mb

nVidia Shader 3.0 is for 6000, 7000, and 8000, so you know

Not Geforce 8 (8xxx). That series is SM4.0 capable.

To be even more precise - Dx9.0c cards have SM3.0, Dx10 cards have SM4, Dx10.1 cards have SM4.1, Dx11 cards have SM5.

I admit, not sure where the ATI cards line starts, but there is Direct X9b, I recall for some Windows ME systems I refurbed! haha


I'm not sure how I got the 8000 series with Shader Model 3, but thanks for that. I still have a nVidia GeForce 6200 I bought as an AGPx8, I think it was Sparkle brand before they became a household brand!
